The wood has sat on my porch now for six months. Through the wet days of spring and into the hot summer, it sat and waited, each piece cut to the exact specifications that I had found after many hours of trolling the internet. As summer morphed into fall, it continued to call out to me and I felt a renewed urgency returned to just get this thing done! But procrastination, as it always seems to do, had firmly entrenched itself in every being of my soul.
But today was the start of a new day. With the help of my daughter, I was able to assemble what you see in the pictures in just a couple of hours. Tomorrow, I’ll put the remaining boards in place and the start the staining process.
More to come!
